It’s on at the perfect time for my daughter – from just after she’s up and dressed til before she has to leave for preschool. She loves the show and she always leaves for school in a great mood – thank you Martha!

My 6 year old loves this show. I admit, I do watch it with her. Its very cute and I love that my daughter picks up on the ‘big words’ and is incorporating them into her daily vocabulary.

Go martha!
